Minds Unravel

Minds Unravel

Most of us have had an old handmade sweater start to unravel, or maybe a pair of socks, or a nice old woven rug. Many things in our lives start to unravel. We never think the mind of a spouse will unravel. That is beyond comprehension, as it takes place, you are shocked, in awe at the change but you can do nothing about. It is like slowly sliding down a slippery slope, nothing to hang onto, no end in sight, until the ultimate end. The end of life. One day at a time takes on a whole new meaning. One hour at a time is more appropriate.

This world is in need of extensive research, a cure, and educational material to prepare for the tsunami of dementia problems ready to wash over almost every household in the near future. Senior care will be a nightmare for the blessed ones who will take jobs in that specialized field.

I have included quotes here from a site that I will share with you, the problems are many and mixed, from con artists to estate planners. A whole new field is opening for law firms, courts, and government.

“More than five million Americans have Alzheimer’s, the most well-known form of dementia, which mostly affects older people. But that number is expected to grow as the population ages. By 2050, nearly 16 million Americans could be living with Alzheimer’s if no cure is found, according to health officials.”

“Dementia and Alzheimer’s are slow-moving and can be hard to diagnose. That was a factor in the case of the Ratners after each accused the other of cognitive impairment. In support of Mrs. Ratner, a doctor‘s note was produced, saying her husband was unable to make informed medical and financial decisions. Mr. Ratner, a dentist, obtained a second evaluation from a doctor who said he had the capacity to make his own financial decisions. In court documents, Mr. Ratner charged that his wife had been diagnosed with “probably mild Alzheimer’s” and was being manipulated by his daughters.”

“The case cited by Mr. Ellis is not isolated. State and federal regulators are seeing a dramatic pickup in the number of elderly individuals who have become victims of bogus lotteries, telemarketing scams, investment fraud, identity theft and unscrupulous lending practices.”

“1 in 8
people over age 65 suffer from Alzheimer’s in the U.S.The 5 states with the highest proportion of sufferers per resident over age 65: North Dakota1 in 5.4 South Dakota1 in 6.1 Rhode Island1 in 6.3 Iowa1 in 6.6 Nebraska1 in 6.7 Source: U.S. Census Bureau, Alzheimer’s Association

“In fact, the elderly are being scammed to the tune of $2.9″ billion a year, according to a 2010 survey from the Metropolitan Life Insurance Co. But that figure, which is based on publicly reported cases, is actually much higher, according to experts.”

  1. The elderly are particularly susceptible to scams and fraud, sinply because we are not so familiar with technology as the younger generations. When you add dementia to the mix, we become even more susceptible. I’m sorry you are having to witness that, and hope I never have to watch it more than I did with my mother (who was very sharp until age 95, and died at 96), and hope I never have to deal with it myself!


  2. Why does no one ever speculate about a cause? This is an epidemic and I don’t remember my mother’s or grandmother’s generation complaining about the loss of memory all of my friends my age seem to be experiencing.


  3. We are what we eat. We eat overly processed foods, from chemical, coated plants. They are laced with preservative, to give them money making extra long shelf lives. If they are unsafe we are not told about it, hotdogs could be left in the hot sun for days without changing, lunchmeat won’t spoil in the frig,

    New laws allow meat packers to grind tons of bones, then mix it with the ground meat that has no label showing country, of origin

    The air and water have been polluted for most of our lives. Most meat is from animals fed growth hormones, all to make maximize profits.

    That is some of my ideas on the cause of our rapid decline of mental health in this world.

    One of the largest culprits is artificial sweeteners. Do you know of anyone who drank lots of diet pop, then ended up with a chemical imbalance in the brain??? That turned to depression, fear, panic attacks etc., etc…

    After all this, the same power, profit, people want new laws to allow using radiation on food to cover up their lousy processing practices!


  4. Hey! Hi! Ho! It’s time my brother. It’s time for us all to Unite as Kindred Spirits. It’s time for the Master/Creator/Redeemer of our beings to take over! He, alone, has the power to resolve the two major problems destroying us all. I wrote the following in http://www.thia-basilia.com/2017/04/25/dont-pass-your-opportunity/ Don’t Pass Your Opportunity…
    Ha! Write & publish & optimize. He will do the rest. Is this a cop out? NAY! If anything, it is a sound cop of all cops! After some 30 years plus of recording my life’s details as per my Father’s instructions to do so, I am finally on the home stretch to win the race!

    For the Almighty Father/Creator of our beings shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it is good or evil.

    That’s the fact regardless all knowledge, beliefs, systems, wealth or the lack of it, poverty, charity, good intentions, brilliant theories, scholars, ignorance, fantasy concepts of His Majesty, all secrets, all of our doings without exception shall be judged!

    How this applies to you personally, dear reader? What’s my point? My point is, I must write & publish & optimize for the Father’s will & purpose to keep us from His final judgement. He will accomplish His purpose.

    Me? By His power of love from on high, I’m offering the solution for the two major problems unresolved by any human being whatsoever. That’s the fact.

    Now, to accomplish the Father’s will & purpose to keep us from His final judgement, these two major problems must be resolved by the power & wisdom of His love from on high. Nothing like the concept of love that we know.

    The problems?
    1. Mental Insanity.
    2. The great tribulation (affliction, distress, and oppression) soon to become real in our world.

    We have been in an anesthetic state about this tribulation because it is something beyond our conception. Besides the fact of the time gone since it was prophesied it will happen, but! It’s written,
    Matthew 24:21-22.
    There will be great tribulation (affliction, distress, and oppression) such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now–no, and never will be [again]. And if those days had not been shortened, no human being would endure and survive, but for the sake of the elect (the chosen ones) those days will be shortened.
    Matthew 24:34-35
    Truly I tell you, this generation (the whole multitude of people living at the same time, in a definite, given period) will not pass away till all these things taken together take place. Sky and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away.

    The solution?

    1. Innovative Approach To Conquer Mental Insanity Permanently And Forever.
    2. We Are In The Days Of Abundance. The Days Of Lack Are Coming. Let’s Prepare By The Power Of Love From On High.
    So, what are the specifics to solve these two monstrous problems assailing humanity now more than ever before? End of quote.

    Hope you click the link above. Hope this comment instills hope in all hearts for our future in the Presence of our Father in the heavens. Much love, thiaBasilia. 🙂
